If you want to begin your studies or training, it is important that you consider what skills you have already developed. By doing this, you are able to potentially reduce the time in which it takes for you to gain your new qualification. In some circumstances, you may not need to study. Our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) focuses on skills and knowledge that you have already gained throughout your life. This could be in terms of both your personal life and work life.
For example, you may have worked on a building site in the past, which could count towards a certificate in bricklaying. If you believe you may have already developed these skills but have no certification for them, then our RPL certificate may be able to help you. You will be assessed against the industry standards by an RPL assessor. They will ask you to perform a range of jobs as well as explain how much you understand about the job in question. This will help to determine whether or not you have the correct expertise for a particular qualification, or if you need to take a course. Our RPL certificate can help to save you both time and money, preventing you from taking a course you already understand.
